As light snow falls and temperature drops, while a  flock of swans and a gaggle of geese  swim and feed on an open patch of open water on lake DeSoto  at DeSoto Bend NWR Monday.  Four to five or more inches of ice and snow covered most of the lake.

Swans, geese and ducks keep a patch of water free  of ice on lake DeSoto.
